On the Teddy course we also teach with radio headsets and the instructor is always in the service boat for safety on the water.

Who is your instructor

Since 1976, one team has been passing on its experience to the next. New employees are trained into a proven team in good time so that they are then fit for the “changing of the guard”. In this way, each team grows with the experience of the “old ones”.

The technical skills in surfing, kitesurfing and sailing are of course constantly improved by the possibility to train in optimal wind conditions. Team training sessions and daily briefings guarantee a uniform system and contents of the courses.

Beach Hotel Rosa Malcesine

The “Stickl Hotel” on the lake, right next to the sports camp station on the beach is the best choice for our course participants. The Beach Hotel Rosa in absolute 5-star top location directly on the beach next to the sports camp offers Watersport & Relax at 3 star prices. The public is active in sports and appreciates the comfort of living directly on the water – from bed to board. With restaurant, pizzeria and bar, the Rosa Beach is also the meeting place after the sports session.

We have returned for the second year and again had a fantastic experience. We enjoyed sailing both catamarans (two hulls) and Dias (one hull).The system of displaying course times each morning at 8.30am does mean an early start but it guarantees the best possible wind for your level each day: worth a great deal when compared to other resorts where we have sailed.


I took the two day, weekend beginner wind surfing course.

They’re well organised, the equipment seemed good and everything worked just fine.
Best of all, they have a mobile friendly website where they give you regular updates for your course, so you don’t have to stay at the school and wait for the weather – you can go elsewhere (within 30 minutes) and keep an eye on the website and just come back to the camp when they notify you on the website.
